Tokyo Milk – Honey & The Moon

Standard

I absolutely love this perfume.

(Just ignore my crappy photo taking)

Look how cute the bottle is on the back.

(Or maybe it’s the front)

I got it when I went to visit Miss Kathryn in Cambria last week. She mentioned to me that Tokyo Milk had come out with a new line called “Dark” and I couldn’t wait to check out the fragrances. The one I wanted, “La Vie La Mort,” sadly sold out within a few days of Kathryn stocking it. Well, sadly for me, definitely not sadly for Hearts Ease. So I got my next favorite scent, which was “Honey & The Moon.”

The bottle lists its scents as: Sweet Honey, Sugared Violet, Jasmine and Sandalwood. To me, it smells like honey, vanilla and jasmine. Either way, I love it. I’ve been wearing it even when I’m alone doing chores and no one else can smell it. Yes dear friends, I am absolutely addicted to my new perfume.

The other thing I love about Tokyo Milk is how affordable it is. One ounce is about $30. The last perfume I bought was Kenzo Amour, which was about $60 for an ounce.

So, if you’re looking for a new fragrance, check out Tokyo Milk. You can always find it online, or you can call Miss Kathryn at Heart’s Ease and have her send you one.

Love & honey & the moon,

Camille

Yosemite and Local Honey

Standard

For the last couple of days I’ve been hiding.

In Yosemite!

Check out some of the gorgeous spots I got to see.

Driving into the park.

Heading into the valley.

The valley and bridal falls.

*Swoon*

I love Yosemite. I could live in Yosemite.  I wish I were still in Yosemite.  Except with my pets and Fernando. Then it would be perfect.

I also wanted to head over to Mono Lake, but Tioga Pass was closed. It was covered with TWELVE feet of snow! I couldn’t believe it. Already June, and with all this crazy weather the pass was impassable. All well, just another excuse to go back right?

I also wandered around the outskirts of Yosemite and decided to take Highway 41 south towards Fresno. I wanted to check out some of the smaller towns around the park. Around Oakhurst or Coarsegold, I came across a small stand selling honey. You know I pulled over right?

This is what I got.

And here’s another shot of the honey from the top. You can really see the difference in color here

The wildflower honey (right) was super sweet just like candy. The buckwheat honey tasted unusual but still good. You knew you were eating honey but it was only slighly sweet and tasted almost like it was mixed with hops. It was also extremely thick, like cutting into a marshmallow. And I loved it.

I’m happy to be home but I’m missing the mountains. Anyone else ready to go back with me?

Love and honey,

Camille
